21 year-old man arrested for Aggravated Sexual Assault of Child

ANDERSON CO., January 30, 2014— 21 year-old Damien Rashard Purvis has been arrested and charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, a first degree felony.

According to Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor, the investigation began when a 15 year-old female went to the doctor and tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease. Subsequent investigation led to the issuing of a warrant for Purvis.

“We are concerned that there could be other victims out there,” said Sheriff Taylor. “So if anybody has had contact with this individual – any underage females – they need to contact the Sheriff’s Office.”

Purvis is being held in the Anderson County Jail on $100,000 bond.
